What to use to glue rubber to rubber?

Heres the deal, I just bought some new Saucony running shoes last week. About 80 miles later, the comfy yet still Chinese made pieces of **** are wearing out on the tread. The other pairs I've had were the classic kind, and there was hard rubber on the bottom, unlike these soft rubber soled pieces of gutter trash.

So here is my plan, not wanting to spend 130 bucks every month or 2 for shoes that won't hurt my knees, I'm gonna cut out and glue or otherwise adhere pieces of old road bike tire to the high wear sections of the soles. But what should I use to do so?

I've got gorilla glue, epoxy, and super glue on hand, but I'd be happy to go buy something else. What would hold best? Any ideas?

a hardware store might have some 3M weather strip adhesive. Not sure how it compares price wise to Shoe Goo, but we used it to secure deck hardware, windows, etc. to race boats prior to installing fasteners and it held on like all get out.

Will have to run some tests and let you know. Never really had the need for a quail on the foredeck of a J22 strangely.

Shoe Goo was the first thing that came to mind but the I also thought of an industrial adhesive that I have used at work. If you can find 3m part # 1300 it will last forever. I used it to mend the sole of one of my tree climbing boots and its held together for 4 years so far.

1300 is fairly comon and easy to source at hardware stores etc.

Shoe goo, works the best and you can actually us it to build up worn soles. It hardens nicely.

I would try contact cement first. That thing grabs.

Hey Mich. Remember on the Chevelle the rubber strip on the bumper? When I rechromed it, nothing could hold it on. That thick strip was heavy. Even the body shop had given me some sort of adhesive that didn't work. I tried about three different things and was getting concerned about messing up the chrome. In desperation I tried Shoo Goo. It's still on there after 8 years!

Shoe Goo gets my vote simply due to the amount of gaps you have to fill between the soles & new tread as well as the amount of flexing that joint will encountre. The contact-cement type glues such as the 3M Super Weatherstripping adhesive works best on surfaces that are matched perfectly and require only a thin layer. And it doesn't handle flexing as well as Shoe Goo.

For 6 bucks and a bike ride out to ferndale I got myself some shoe goo this morning. I applied it to the bottom of the soles but didn't put sections of tire on it like I was gonna. I figure if it lasts so much as 2 weeks before needing to be re-applied, thats just dandy. The stuff is cheap.

You could roll it into little balls, wait for it to harden and load it into some low brass shells for a neat less lethal load.
